So the package is architecture: all, but uses different configuration files
for different architectures?  What do you do if you don't have a
configuration file for a particular architecture?

If this is the situation, it might make more sense to create an
architecture-dependent package containing the configuration, to use the
normal mechanisms for controlling which architectures are supported.
